In this programme Mairi gathers recipe ideas for a Sunday dinner. Duck breasts are a great alternative to the traditional roast joint and can be served up in half the time, and a light cake filled with fruit and served with custard will round off any Sunday meal.
Mairi's family always look forward to a Sunday as a day of relaxation and good food. She will be at the stove preparing a hearty spicy parsnip soup that is the perfect Sunday starter and can be made in advance. Sundays should always be a bit of a treat too, and nothing says that more than a rich sticky toffee pudding. Mairi makes her own with silky smooth homemade ice cream.
In this programme Mairi gathers recipe ideas for when you're rushed off your feet and need something quick and tasty. From a filling spaghetti dish that can be whipped up in a quarter of an hour to a sponge ready in half an hour for unexpected visitors.
With a busy household and a hungry family Mairi knows the importance of quick recipes that work every time. For those unexpected visitors that call for a ceilidh she prepares a dumpling in a matter of minutes using the microwave and a light soup that can feed a horde of hungry mouths in no time.
In this programme, Mairi gathers recipe ideas for a birthday party from skilled home-cooks and parents well versed in throwing parties for all ages. From party favourites like millionaire shortbread loved by every generation, to homemade chicken goujons, made with good-quality meat so you know the children are getting some proper nutrition.
With a family of her own, Mairi has thrown a few parties in her time and she will be in her kitchen in North Uist with her little helper Ruairidh making chocolate chip cookies for him and his friends. She will be preparing something for the adults too. Her parmesan cheese twists are quick to make and sure to impress your party guests.
In this programme, Mairi gathers recipe ideas for food that's perfect for when you're on the go - from picnic food to lunchbox staples. Skilled home-cooks show Mairi recipes for cakes that are perfect for transporting and how a French classic, duck a l'orange, can be adapted for a picnic.
Living in Uist and with a family of her own Mairi is constantly travelling to and from the mainland with hungry mouths to feed whilst on the road. Homemade lunchboxes ensure her and the family are getting something fresh and nutritious as they travel rather than depending on shop-bought sandwiches. Her homemade scotch eggs and pork pies do just the trick.
In this episode Mairi samples a variety of delicious and adventurous treats from Lewis to Skye. She tries cupcakes for adult, delicate little cakes but with the added kick of gin and tonic, and decadent profiteroles filled with rich chocolate mousse. For a savoury main course she tries a venison pie filled with tender meat, cranberries and chestnuts.
From her own kitchen in Uist Mairi also makes her own recipes to impress. She makes her striking walnut cake with a brilliant-white American frosting and a meringue roulade with a crunchy almond crust filled with fresh raspberries.
